Thoughts on Death, the Dodo Bird and Der Trumpenfuhrer

 

I received an email from a friend who is 90 years of age.

I Like the music “there will be some changes made”, hopefully for the better in our personal lives. But the changes in the political arena in my opinion, we are in for a disastrous 4 years. I don’t think I’ll be around to witness any changes, So I sympathize with the future generation. Ugly future Name TRUMPUTIN The new dictator. Bob

I replied to him with this:

Bob, we’ve got to keep on trucking until that nincompoop-in-chief goes the way of the Dodo bird… No leaving existence at this time, it’s not allowed… We have to stay alive to catch the fireworks and see Trump’s ass go down in a heap of shit… That’s my story and I’m sticken to it. Carolyn

PS: Here’s a political musical video that I did when it was election time 2008.

I thought we had had enough with Dubya Bush, who seems like a baby kitty cat next to Der Trumpenfuhrer. We had no idea what was yet to come. (similar to the 1930’s German people)

Never, not in a million years could we believe America could be so utterly stupid as to vote in a MONSTER IMBECILE as leader of the Free World! HAVE YOU HAD ENOUGH?

Thoughts on the Dodo Bird:

THE DODO BIRD

EXTINCT

The dodo bird inhabited the island of Mauritius in the Indian Ocean, where it lived undisturbed for so long that it lost its need and ability to fly. It lived and nested on the ground and ate fruits that had fallen from trees. There were no mammals on the island and a high diversity of bird species lived in the dense forests.

In 1505, the Portuguese became the first humans to set foot on Mauritius. The island quickly became a stopover for ships engaged in the spice trade. Weighing up to 50 pounds, the dodo bird was a welcome source of fresh meat for the sailors. Large numbers of dodo birds were killed for food.

Later, when the Dutch used the island as a penal colony, pigs and monkeys were brought to the island along with the convicts. Many of the ships that came to Mauritius also had uninvited rats aboard, some of which escaped onto the island.

Before humans and other mammals arrived the dodo bird had little to fear from predators. The rats, pigs and monkeys made short work of vulnerable dodo bird eggs in the ground nests.

The combination of human exploitation and introduced species significantly reduced dodo bird populations. Within 100 years of the arrival of humans on Mauritius, the once abundant dodo bird was a rare bird.

The last dodo bird was killed in 1681.  http://www.bagheera.com/inthewild/ext_dodobird.htm
